Call For Papers

IEEE/ACM International Conference on Information and Communication Technologies and Development

Conference dates: December 13th – 16th, 2010, London, UK
Paper submission deadline: April 2nd, 2010 (11.59 pm Greenwich Mean Time)

The goal of the ICTD conference is to provide an international forum for scholarly researchers exploring ICTs applied to development. The conference is academically rigorous and multidisciplinary. Submitted papers will be subjected to double-blind peer review, and a CD of the proceedings will be published at the time of the conference. The conference will bring together researchers in both the social and technical sciences, with anticipated representation from anthropology, computer science, design, economics, electrical engineering, geography, information science, political science, sociology, and so on. ICTD2010 is the fourth of an ongoing series of conferences occurring every one-and-a-half years; previous conferences have taken place in Berkeley, CA (USA); Bangalore (India); and Doha (Qatar).

For the purposes of this conference, the term “ICT” comprises electronic technologies for information processing and communication, as well as platforms such as the Internet that are built on such technologies. “Development” means international development, including, but not restricted to, poverty alleviation, education, agriculture, healthcare, general communication, gender equality, governance, infrastructure, environment and sustainable livelihoods. Papers considering novel design, new technology, project assessment, policy analyses, impact studies, theoretical contributions, social issues around ICT and development, and so forth will be considered. Well-analysed negative results from which generalisable conclusions can be drawn are also sought.

Relevant papers reporting high-quality original research are solicited. Full papers will be reviewed in a double-blind process and evaluated according to their novel research contribution, methodological soundness, theoretical framing and reference to related work, quality of analysis, quality of writing and presentation, and relevance and comprehensibility to a multidisciplinary ICTD audience.

All accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, and eventually on IEEE Xplore. A subset of the papers will also appear in a special edition of ITID.

Only original, unpublished, full research papers in English will be considered (submissions not meeting a minimum bar of academic research writing will be rejected without full review; a separate call for contributions to sessions in Spanish and French is being issued). Word-length limit: 8000 words. Reviews will be double blind, so papers should not include author names or other information that would identify the authors (references to previous work by the authors should be in the third person). Authors should follow IEEE formats and styles; samples of this are also available in PDF and MS Word formats. Authors will be required to sign a copyright release for publication in the conference proceedings. Additional submission details will be posted on the conference website as the information becomes available.

Calls for other interactive conference sessions, including workshops, panels, demos and sessions in Spanish and French, will shortly be made available.
